Salah, who hit a stunning 44 goals for Liverpool last season in all competitions, was forced out of the May 26 Champions League final in tears clutching his left shoulder after being wrestled to the ground by Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.
The move didn't only highlight the Liverpool forward's absence for Egypt; the space Mohsen found also underscored how Belgium could miss center back Vincent Kompany if he is not fit to play in Russian Federation.
Ramos was also widely condemned for his part in the injury with a petition set up urging UEFA to punish the centre-back receiving over 300,000 signatures.
He was then asked to react to Ramos' version of events from Kiev, as he was quick to dismiss the Spaniard's view, especially the idea that he could have continued the game with an injection in his shoulder.

Medical scans revealed that Salah would be sidelined for three weeks at least, but the player, who has since completed a rehabilitation programme in Spain, is hopeful he will make Egypt's World Cup opener against Uruguay on 16 June. It was not normal because we won the African Cup seven times, and we were champions in 2006, 2008 and 2010.
And Hazard, who was among the scorers in Belgium's 3-0 friendly win over Egypt this week, is also optimistic his former Chelsea teammate will feature at the tournament. I will support Egypt in the World Cup for him. "We are in preparation but we will be ready for the World Cup".
"He's helped me to defend better, but he also finds a way to make it easier to attack". Of course, you can then say "right, we've got there, that's that", but for me it's not like that.
'We had not achieved it for a long time and it was something very special. That's not going through my head.
